Narrative:
Upon return to a private strip, after waiting for a local shower to pass, the pilot carried out a normal approach and landed. The strip had just been mown and was covered with grass which caused the aircraft to skid when the brakes were applied. The aircraft overran the strip impacting with the fence at the end. Upon exiting the aircraft, it was noted that the propeller had impacted a star picket and there was some minor damage done to the cowlings and a branch had touched the leading edge of the left wing, leaving a small indent and scratching underside of left flaperon.
